1lb flaked oats (i might toast these.. not sure yet)
3/4 lb crystal 60L
3/4 lb chocolate malt
1/2 lb cara-pils
1/2 lb roasted barley (I may reduce this to 1/4 lb)
1 oz Chinook @ 60 mins
1 oz Glacier @ 5 mins
WLP001 California Ale or S-05 yeast
6 oz cocoa nibs (soaked in small amount of vodka) dumped in secondary
1 or 2 vanilla beans done the same way into the secondary

5.5 gallons into the fermenter

I'm trying to decide what type of body I want for this beer. I'm currently thinking about a medium body and a 154 mash, but I might mash slightly higher but not up to 158... maybe 155 or 156...

EDIT - 9/15/2009

I did modify this recipe just a little and I will post the update after I have taste tested sometime in December....
Why soak the nibs in Vodka? Is that to sterilize? How much and for how long?

That's how you make extract (check the label of any vanilla extract bottle). The alcohol extracts what you need from the bean. Use enough vodka, or whatever spirit you select, to cover the nibs and let them soak for a couple of days. And yes, the vodka does keep it sterile too.

Lots of flavors are alcohol soluable. Vodka brings little more to the party than alcohol so it's a pretty good carrier as long as you don't use too much.

Initial tasting thoughts were sweet chocolate up front and then bitterness of the hops came through in the after taste, quite good so far.

Edit: Efficiency 89%
How'd this turn out!?

Turned out amazing!! Im actually going to enter this into the Gnarly Barley competition here in Colorado in August.

Came out smooth, good mouth feel with really good chocolate tones. Originally thought that the chocolate would be over the top (I used milk chocolate not dark) but it mellowed out considerably. Came out at 7.1%

Has anyone used vanilla extract as apposed to a bean? I brewed this earlier this year and it was fantastic. Im going to brew again but wanted to use vanilla extract and add mint leaves. Thoughts?

I'd start with a teaspoon or two in secondary, sample it before bottling and adjust a little in the bottling bucket if you need.

I notice in the gluten free recipe they roasted the oats. I haven't seen anything here about it, but I'm assuming you do right? What temp how long?

Plan to brew it this weekend as it will be my first partial mash.
